December 21

Gracious and holy Lord, there are so many things for which to be grateful, especially at this time of year.  Thank you for the tiny lights that shine in the darkness.  Thank you for the angel at the top on my tree. Thank you for Christmas cookies.  Thank you for the cheerful generosity that so many people show at this season.  Thank you for the ringing of bells.  Thank you for family, even the challenging members.  Thank you for the many people who buy and wrap and deliver gifts to those in need.  Thank you for Christmas carols.  Thank you for the old, old story renewed every year as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, in whose name we pray.  Amen.
